Prizes for cardiac nurse pioneers

  • Comment

Some of the UK’s top cardiac nurses have been rewarded for the pioneering services they have developed.

The Cardiac Nursing Awards, run by the British Journal of Cardiac Nursing, are intended to reward excellent in evidence-based cardiac nursing care.

This year Alison Pottle, cardiology nurse consultant at London’s Royal Brompton and Harefield Trust, won first prize in the Excellence in Primary or Secondary Prevention category for developing a rapid access chest pain clinic and setting up pioneering cardiology nursing teams.

Charles Bloe, clinical ward manager with NHS Highland, Invernesshire, won the Innovation through Education or Research prize for his ‘ECG Demystified’ course, which has been completed by more than 8,500 healthcare professionals.

Resuscitation nurse consultant Nick Castle, from Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey, won the award for Excellence or Innovation in Acute or Critial Care. He has helped reduce cardiac arrests at his hospital by introducing a patient assessment scoring system to staff life support training.
